Midterms Week As Explained By 'The Office'
The Office

Tis' the season. Spring break is just around the corner and the last thing anyone wants to do is work. When the week of spring break approaches us, students like to pretend it is already here and give up on any responsibilities. Midterms, a word I must not say too loud on school grounds is approaching. Midterm Week can be described in many ways, stressful being the top definition. I believe the cast of The Office would agree with me, In fact, they are the perfect people to explain how Midterm Week is approached.

1. When you hear the word "midterms" you shutter

The word is almost as bad as "finals". Between the studying, the lack of sleep and the annoying fact that spring break is so close - you are stuck hanging by a thread.

2. There is always that one teacher

Regardless of how much you study, you never make an amazing grade. I'm talking missed dinners, no sleep, hundreds of flashcards and you still just skate by. If that teacher happens to read this article, the image below is how you make me feel.

3. Everything makes you mad, no matter what it is

If you don't hate everyone during midterms, then pat yourself on the back because you're a superhero. No, I am not a mean and unfriendly person. I am a sleep deprived stressed student.

4. Nothing about Midterm Week is enjoyable

Sometimes sitting in your room crying and eating ice-cream is okay. Just remember, regardless of your grade ice cream is only a grocery store away.

5. After studying in between each class and through the night, you are somehow still not fully prepared

About ten minutes into the test and this is your reaction on the inside:

6. At some point, you give up and dream about spring break

Admit it, there is a point where you say to yourself, "Oh well, it's almost spring break," which then becomes your excuse for everything.

7. Your reaction after turning in your last midterm

That moment is almost as amazing as Christmas day. Hell week is finally over!!

Midterm Week is not only filled with exams. Professors are able to assign more homework, essays and power points than ever before mentioned on the syllabus. Regardless of midterms, spring break is the reward for those countless hours in the library, and I think I'm going to take it.
